GC3 graduates into S3IT

Today, July 1st 2014, there is no longer any "us" working at the Grid Computing Competence Center. The hands that typed these news posts, the very people that you met and talked to, are now part of the Services and Support for Science IT section of UZH.

The GC3 website remains alive, mostly for historical and documentation purposes, but no new content will be posted here: please check out the S3IT website at http://www.s3it.uzh.ch/ for new announcements and updates!

We are glad that the vision that we tried to materialize in our work all these years, the firm belief that IT infrastructure should be implemented for scientists and with scientists --to solve actual problems arising from research and not to scratch a technology itch--, we are glad that this vision is fully shared by S3IT and has inspired its set-up and inception.

We would like to thank, first and foremost, Prof. Kim Baldridge, who has been founder and director of GC3, and the main propelling force for all our activities at UZH. Thank you Kim, for your continued and enthusiastic support and for believing in this project all these years long.

We would also like to thank and the people that have worked at GC3 over the years and acknowledge their contribution: Wibke Sudholt, Mike Packard, Nadya Williams, Peter Praxmarer, Tirath Ramdas, Sergio Maffioletti, Riccardo Murri, Tyanko Aleksiev, Antonio Messina, Benjamin Jonen, Lukasz Miroslaw, and Nicolas Baer.

Finally, we would like to thank the many people that have worked together with us in collaboration projects large and small, too many to name here. The story does not end now: we hope to see and work with you again and again in new projects and new challenges! Ad maiora!
